He has investigated many start-up companies and has worked to develop relationships with them which could potentially lead to a business venture.

His experience includes working for a start-up company and for multinational companies (Exxon & Bayer). At these firms he was involved in the specialty chemical, lubricant and polymer industries. He has worked in Canada, USA and Switzerland.
